Help Unlocking OEM Sony Bios
Posted: Fri Feb 11, 2005 9:27 pm
Hello, I have been searching for a week on how to unlock hidden features in my Sony bios. I have a ASUS P4B266-LM board. The original bios is an award 6.0 v1.02, and I upgraded to v1.04. The board is not officially supported by ASUS because it is an OEM board so they will not help me out. I am able to extract the parts of the bios (original.tmp, cpucode, etc etc) using cbrom or Award bios ediotr, but thats about as far as I got. Modbin will not open the 1.02 or 1.04 versions of the bios, and I also tried Dling 3 versiosn of a P4B266-M bios from ASUS, and I can not get modbin to open any of these either. I have no access to any advanced setup features such as FSB, AGP aperature, Memory timings, CPU multiplier, etc etc. About all I can do is change the system date and time and disable onboard sound/ethernet stuff. I am pretty sure the advanced features of the bios are available because they are listed in the Award bios editor setup menu under the system tab, I just need to find a way to acceess/unlock them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
